with the libyan government. they had a willingness to protect our people but not a capacity. if you knew there was no capacity, i saw that video from that night. i have to tell you, the libyans that we had charged, we outsourced our security to, they ran as soon as they saw those attackers come to the consulate gate. and so we knew they didn't have that capacity. i think as the person who is in charge, the accountability review board found that there were systemic failures of leadership, that this is a very important issue. >> i've been listening to the republicans getting on their high horse about this for a long time. i thought a lot of today's criticism was political grandstanding in many ways. if you go back to catastrophic intelligence failures before 9/11 or in the build to the iraq war more serious than this. that's not to diminish the deaths of four americans but those led to the deaths of many, many, many more americans. you got to say get this in perspective. hillary clinton to me seemed to me today to be sincere. i don't think anyone can expect the secretary of state to read e
? >> this is what this year the government is willing to permit? >> but you have already agreed -- >> in new york state -- >> you have already agreed with the decision to not permit americans to have automatic firing weapons. what's the difference? >> i don't think people -- okay, so now we're arguing over whether or not very many people's lives will be saved. i'm challenging you and others -- >> no, i'm not asking you. i'm asking you how many more guns does an american civilian need other than 2,200 that would be permitted under the new assault weapons ban. how many do they need to defend themselves, for goodness sake? what i can't understand, what is the difference between mass slaughter created by an automatic weapon and weapon we saw at aurora or sandy hook that can kill 100 people in a minute. what is the difference? >> wait a second. first of all, you're making our case. permitted. in other words, this year they're going to permit. next year, they may not permit. >> there are 50 or more gun control rules which do not permit americans to use certain types of weaponry already. so that permiss
. >> as a government -- >> talks about education, it is axiomatic to be competitive in the world, we have to do a better job on education. we have to control our energy in the future and we've got to develop new sources of energy. that's axiomatic. we have to invest in research and development and stay on the cutting edge of innovation. all these things are a part of developing the kind of economy in which people have their best shot. >> i've never seen the president quite as emotionally moved as i saw him after sandy hook and this is an issue that we have carried a lot on my show but when i saw what he said the other day and the proposals put forward, executive order and with congress, i was so impressed by the boldness and the courage of the leadership and then the reality check. within minutes, people popping up on both sides saying, well, of course, he can't through an assault weapons ban. >> we'll see. >> today, a young teenage boy killed five people with an assault weapon. the weekend, we had people injured at gun shows with guns. the irony not lost on anybody on gun appreciation day. ame
if it removed the loopholes would have no effect, zero effect? >> the government studies, the justice department studies about the previous gun ban said it had no effect. we actually have some social science on it. >> it was riddled with loopholes. when you see as has happened the last five shootings in america all involving an ar-15 style military assault rifle. that's what they are. they are almost the same as an m-16. when you see that happen, do you not think there's a compelling argument to say civilians don't need these things and if it means that crazy people are going to get their hands on them easily, go to walmart or whatever they do, it's just time to take a humane action and remove them. i'd love the nra to say something like that and say not the handguns, not this, but those. those killing machines we agree don't belong. >> those are the exact same weapons as a hunting rifle. >> they're not. >> yes, they are. they're exactly the same as hunting rifles and they put little goo guys on them. >> my grandfather's shotgun is the gun that i own. this is one of those things. we have a cultu
're sitting and waiting for the government to come up with the answer for us, the president to come up with a vision, you'll have a problem. if you've been on unemployment for 12 million americans, those jobs probably aren't coming back. it's time to retool and say where is the next opportunity, is it in health care, is it in green. where am i going to get the skills. the government is going to step up and say here's a pathway. you've got to find it yourself. >> we've seen apple and starbucks make a turn in the water. >> you talked about that the last time i was on. >> apple has since then done so. it was a start. but it's about the principle, really, of great american companies in the tech world. they lead the world. but a lot of the stuff's outsourced outside of america. that doesn't really help the american jobs market, even though by being successful companies they do in that way. >> yes. i think you've got to look at it in the context, talking about looking back through history. if you and i were having this discussion 100 years ago, 40% of americans were farmers. now it's just 2%
